Our Farmhouse In Town sits on a quiet country style road on just under a 1/3 of an acre.
I was once described as a pretty city girl. I smile when I recall hearing this description of myself. To be summed up so quickly but accurately. At that time in my life, I had never had a garden. Owned more than a weenie dog for animal. Or kept any sort of living thing alive other than my daughter. I hated camping. Dirt, nature, bugs. The whole bit. A few close friends remark on those times with almost amazement. I laugh too. Who would have thought there was a farm girl in here?
Rather a city farmgirl have you. But nonetheless, a lover of country living.
Yet here we are. Ready to put my hands in the dirt and create not only an abundant space but a beautiful one as well.
Here, living what I would call the best days of my life so far.
We live in a smallish agricultural town. A town I grew up in. In a home sitting on a country style road with just under a 1/3 of an acre.
If it was up to me, we would have 2 acres in the middle of nowhere. But my daughter quickly reminds me how much work it is to keep up with this space. She reels me in when I am crazy with ideas. God chose her for me and it is a constant reminder how perfect he made this world.
I purchased this home approximately 3 years ago. It was a modest home with good bones, on a quiet street and tons of yard space.
At the time, I only cared that it was in my budget and on a decent street. I had no idea this was the start of an entirely new way of life for us.
Today that modest little house that only had good bones, has become a farmhouse in the city. Here we have a year round garden, a flock of chickens, a few fruit trees, rabbits and a couple of ducklings.
It’s been a learning experience for both my daughter and I.
I hope it continues to serve as that. There is nothing like standing side by side with your children, and being able to teach life’s greatest lessons.
The value of putting your hand to something worthwhile.
To appreciate nature, life, food and togetherness.
Welcome to our farmhouse in town.
